Alyssa Milano and her female pro-abortion pals have gone on a sex strike as a form of protest over pro-life legislation.
In other words, Ms. Milano and company have taken up and are promoting abstinence — the most effective way to ward off unwanted pregnancy — to stick it to the conservatives. And, ironically, the women who hate “being told what to do with their bodies” — as the factually inaccurate pro-abortion talking point goes — are telling other women what to do with their bodies.
Yeah, the plan was not very well thought out.
“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” wrote the actress in a tweet published Saturday. “Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”
In a follow-up tweet, Milano posted: “We can LOVE sex and fight for our bodily autonomy. There are lots of alternatives to cis men. Protect your vaginas, ladies. Men in positions of power are trying to legislate them.”
Other feminists joined in, too. “Our feminist foremothers fought for sexual liberation, which goes hand in hand with bodily autonomy. It’s up to us to protect it. Desperate times call for desperate measures,” wrote Maureen Shaw, Editor-in-Chief of SheRights.com.
“Hey everyone upset about Alyssa Milano’s #sexstrike. Thanks for helping this trend, that was the point, [because] women’s lives are in danger,” claimed PoliticsUSA columnist Sarah Reese Jones. “P.S. It’s not [Alyssa Milano]’s fault our culture is patriarchal; she doesn’t own that just b/c she’s acknowledging it.”
However, politicos, smacked with the idiocy of a sex strike somehow saving abortion, were quick to call out Milano.
“First time I’ve ever seen a pro-choicer advocate for personal responsibility. Kudos! If y’all have a rally [let me know] I’ll be there,” mocked Blaze TV’s Allie Beth Stuckey.
“Becoming morally abstinent to own the social conservatives,” popular political account Neontaster sarcastically pointed out.
Live Action founder and fierce pro-life advocate Lila Rose replied: “I’m totally with you, [Alyssa Milano] on not having sex. But the issue isn’t ‘reproductive rights.’ The issue is reproductive responsibilities & fidelity. No one should have sex until they’re ready to embrace the privilege & responsibility of lifelong commitment & raising a child.”
“We’re going on a sex strike which will result in fewer abortions. Owned, cons,” mocked conservative columnist Stephen Miller, adding, “Feminists are openly promoting less sex. It’s wild.”
Campus Reform contributor Ben McDonald noted that the “transphobia” of the sex strike “is off the charts.”
Pro-abortion women similarly called for a sex strike to save abortion in July.
“Spooked by the Supreme Court vacancy of Justice Anthony Kennedy, Harper’s Bazaar political editor-at-large Jennifer Wright called for a sex strike from fellow pro-abortion gals to save landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. Wright instructed her pro-abortion allies to withhold sex and dating ‘with anyone who doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose,’” The Daily Wire previously reported.
